1934 – Basil Shelley

This picture is of young Basil Shelley, Grandson of the founder, John Green and father to band members, David and Graham Shelley. The trombone he is holding was purchased for him by his mother (Nan) Nora Shelley. Basil went on to become solo trombone in the band before handing over to his son David. I understand that he was also kept busy with playing in dance bands etc.
